[UPDATE BELOW] Mitt Romney may have strapped his Irish setter Seamus to the roof of his car during a family vacation, but at least he never ate dog like Barack Hussein Obama did…when he was six…in Indonesia. Important D.C. publication The Daily Caller brings up a passage of Obama's book, Dreams from My Father, in which the future president describes being fed dog meat, snake meat, and grasshopper, by his stepfather in Indonesia. "Say what you want about Romney," hilarious web pundit Jim Treacher writes, "But at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth." Ha ha stop, stop, your DOGGONE jokes are killing us. Stop.
Naturally, people who are paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to present the positions of the two politicians to the public and ask substantive questions of one another's campaigns are engaged in a Twitter fight about dog meat eaten in Indonesia in the 1960s.

[UPDATE] PETA flack Nicole Dao has spoken to The Daily Caller and says that in regard to Obama's dog snack, "A child has an excuse, but grownups all should know by now the disgusting condition of slaughterhouses and fear and suffering that animals endure on factory farms and try a vegetarian diet that’s good for them, animals, and the environment."
